It's been three years since the passing of Gang Starr's Guru (born Keith Edward Elam), and his longtime producer Marco Polo leaks "G.U.R.U" in memory of the fallen Hip Hop pioneer with the help of Talib Kweli and DJ Premier. The tribute is the firts single from Marco Polo's July LP PA2: The Director's Cut.
About "G.U.R.U." Polo said:
"I decided to leak this record one day early to ensure DJ’s and everyone can have it ready for his anniversary and it can be played tomorrow,” says Marco Polo. “This is one of the most important records I’ve ever been a part of. Thank you to Talib Kweli and DJ Premier for being a part of this incredible record! Please help share this record and celebrate the life of an artist who influenced myself and so many others in Hip-Hop and music period! R.I.P. Keith Edward Elam aka G.U.R.U. (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal)!”
